We give an orbifold Riemann-Roch formula in closed form for the Hilbert series of a quasismooth polarized n-fold X,D, under the assumption that X is projectively Gorenstein with only isolated orbifold points. Our formula is a sum of parts each of which is integral and Gorenstein symmetric of the same canonical weight; the orbifold parts are called "ice cream functions". This form of the Hilbert series is particularly useful for computer algebra, and we illustrate it on examples of K3 surfaces and Calabi-Yau 3-folds. These results apply also with higher dimensional orbifold strata (see [A. Buckley and B. Szendroi, Orbifold Riemann-Roch for 3-folds with an application to Calabi-Yau geometry, J. Algebraic Geometry 14 (2005) 601--622] and [Shengtian Zhou, Orbifold Riemann-Roch and Hilbert series, University of Warwick PhD thesis, March 2011, 91+vii pp.], although the correct statements are considerably trickier. We expect to return to this in future publications.
